Does Eric run through the winter? My wife will be there this February and would like to join the tour on a Sunday. Is this a possibility?

Hi All: How is it that everyone is getting in touch with this Eric of Portlandia Free Walking Tours? I will be in Portland in about a week and am interested in contacting him to join one of his tours. Not sure how to go about doing that. Thanks in advance - Michele

You don't have to contact him to take the tour. Just show up at Pioneer Courthouse Square a couple of minutes before tour time and he should be there.
